Minecraft is a success for giving the player the freedom to create, which makes each match unique and an individual experience. But, creative freedom does not extend only to your game mode, the creators of the game also encourage the modification of the game itself.
One of the possible modifications of the game is the default texture pack. They will change the look of the game, making it more beautiful. However, by changing the look of Minecraft, we may lose performance. Therefore, you need to balance the beauty with performance, follow the tips and let your game get tuned:
By default, Minecraft suggests video settings for your computer. To change these settings is very simple, just follow the steps below:
Step 1 – With the game on your home screen, select “Options” from the main menu.
Step 2 – A new menu, with new options, will open. Select the “Video Settings” option.
By default, Minecraft analyzes your hardware and suggests video settings. The performance of the game can be observed accordingly.
To view the performance information within your game just press the “F3” key on your keyboard in any game mode (survival/creative).
Step 3 – Change the following settings:
Graphics Soft Lighting Anaglyph 3D Particles Full Screen Rendering Area Performance Movement in View OpenGL Advanced Clouds Server Textures Use Vsync
When making the changes you’ve made, check your game’s performance.
Okay, your game is already ready to receive a graphical improvement without there being much performance loss. As stated earlier, texture packs are responsible for the look of the game and therefore must be modified.
Texture packs can be found quickly during a search on your preferred search site because there is no default repository for this. However, some of them can be found in the game forum.
For this tutorial, we will use the Texture Pack Sphax PureBDCraft. Many of the packages will contain several different resolutions, from 16×16 to 512×512. However, we recommend using the 128×128, and only increase or decrease according to the performance of the game:
Step 1 – Download the desired texture pack.
Step 2 – The extension file .zip be moved to the game textures folder. To do this, click the “Start” menu and then “Run”. Enter the %appdata path.
Minecraft texture packs and press the “Enter” key, or “OK” button to confirm. A new window should open. Now check the address bar, located at the top, to see if the path is correct.
Copy or move the file into the game folder.
Step 3 – Start the game and select “Options” from the main menu. (If you have trouble finding the option, check the first image in this tutorial)
Step 4 – Within the Options menu, select “Texture Packs.”
Step 5 – You can verify that the Default option is selected and a new item with the name of the chosen package should appear below. Click the name of the texture pack you want to use, wait until it is selected, and then go to “Done.”
